SB 1037, as introduced, Hernandez. State highways.
Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of the state highway system. Existing law requires the department to keep in repair all objects or markers adjacent to a state highway that have been erected to mark registered historical places and to keep those markers free from vegetation that may obscure them from view.
